Pottinger Peak Country Trail is a short 1.9km hike that is accessible from Chai Wan and takes you a little further down to Sui Sai Wan.
To get the the beginning of the trail you will need to first walk up through the Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery off of Lin Shing Road. On a hot day this is quite a difficult task since you will be walking uphill 190 meters through a non-shaded concrete area. After that the trail is entirely flat or downhill.
